webinarDigital Buildings, PoE, and IoT: Preparing Your Network for the Future
Presenter: Tony Benn, Senior Pre-Sales Technical Manager Description:

Today’s network infrastructure supports more than just voice and data. With the rise of Intelligent Buildings and the Internet of Things (IoT), many legacy applications are migrating to Ethernet-based technologies to take advantage of the benefits of Power over Ethernet (PoE), prepare for higher bandwidth demands, and improve network efficiency and control. Copper cabling, with its ability to support both power and data simultaneously, offers a number of advantages for the today’s building IT network.

This webinar will provide an overview of the market drivers fueling the rise of intelligent buildings, current and future applications being integrated into the enterprise data network, and practical implications of IoT for existing network infrastructure.

We’ll cover key considerations that will help you ensure your current cabling and future upgrades support intelligent building design, including:

  • Infrastructure planning and cable selection for PoE
  • Design considerations including the impact of increased part density and benefits of zone vs. traditional cabling architecture
  • Network topologies and testing

Cloud City webinarCloud City: Navigating Cloud Data Center and Enterprise Network Cabling Options
Presenter: Dave Mullen, Senior Product Manager, Leviton Network Solutions

Large cloud data centers are often on the cutting edge when it comes to adopting the latest network switches and servers. Yet with so many different transceiver options now available, it is important for data center managers to choose a cabling system that can adapt to handle the rapidly changing landscape. The best plans will address transceiver upgrades as part of the structured cabling strategy, and vice versa. This live webinar will answer the most common questions about fiber cabling systems asked by data center engineers and managers:

  • What are the pros and cons of different strand counts in fiber systems: 2, 8, 12, 24?
  • Should I choose single-mode or OM5?
  • Which systems are best for an easy migration to 10/40/100/400 Gb/s?

Attendees will also get an overview of the quickly-evolving transceiver marketplace, as well as ways to improve efficiency and cabling density.

Anticipating Category 8 WebinarAnticipating Cat 8 | Plan for 25/40GBASE-T Networks Today
Presenters: Jonathan Dunbar, Senior Product Manager & Leandra Cresswell, Associate Product Manager, Leviton Network Solutions Europe

Category 8 cabling systems and 25/40GBASE-T solutions have arrived. It's impressive that the same twisted-pair cabling and RJ-45 interface that delivered 10 Mb/s 15 years ago still play an important role in next generation networks. But where will Cat 8 be deployed? How will it be tested? Even if Cat 8 is not part of your immediate strategy, it is important to anticipate future tech refreshes in your current network infrastructure design.

This webinar will cover three key areas:

  • Overview: Learn the purposes for Cat 8 and 25/40GBASE-T and the new standards that define it.
  • Practical applications: See how Cat 8 will be used in common data center topologies.
  • Comparing alternatives: Get a comparison of direct attach copper (DAC) and fibre to Cat 8.

Watch this webinar and come away with a solid understanding of Category 8 and its benefits.
